One on the best graphic memoirs I've read in a long time. Yang weaves together an interesting story of history, culture, and family. The art work is incredible, subtle sketches in black and white, carrying with them the East. I like this even more than Persepolis.

Add this to the list of must read memoirs in the Year of the Rabbit! I enjoyed the illustrations and learning about the history of modern China through the author's telling of her family's story.
